Supervisor's comments on why you were selected:
"Topoly does amazing work at the 14th Fighter Squadron. I always have pilots tell me how impressed they are with her knowledge of enemy tactics during intelligence briefings.  She proved to be an integral part of our intelligence shop downrange and now that we're back she continues to impress with her diligence and hard work.  She definitely deserves the recognition!" -1st Lt. Samantha L. Duff, 14th Fighter Squadron chief of intelligence
